Thinking GreenProtecting the fragile environment
The Sands is a holder of the prestigious gold-rated eco-certificate from Eco-Tourism Kenya for its work to further sustainable tourism and through the preservation of Kenya’s rich and varied environmental and cultural heritage.
Our environmental ethos extends across a range of projects including beach clean-ups and a paper and plastics initiative to recycle, up-cycle and reduce plastic waste and pollution in our ocean.
The Nomad Beach Bar and Restaurant uses biodegradable paper straws and re-chargeable, LED tea lights in place if paraffin wax candles to avoid the harmful toxins created by burning candles. We also use refillable, bespoke drinking glasses and bottles and refuse to buy undersized seafood.
Our five-acre organic farm uses the principles of permaculture farming to produce fruit and vegetable harvests for our restaurant kitchen. To find out more about the Nomad farm and other Thinking Green initiatives visit The Thinking Green Blog:
